TDC Bitumen Unloading Project

As an EPC contractor for TDC/Genesis Energy, EXCEL provided a total design and construction solution for their Bitumen Unloading facility in Natchez, Mississippi. The scope was to engineer, procure, and construct a project capable of transferring product from as many as 40 rail cars to storage tanks and from tanks to barges on the Mississippi River. Successful completion of this unique project required ingenuity, complex logistics coordination, outstanding teamwork and incredible adaptability. The project was unique because this project is one of the first in the U.S. In spite of the significant scope of work increase, grueling schedule and weather related obstacles, EXCEL mastered all three challenges. As a result, the project was completed on time and under budget with zero safety incidents.
